Mailday From Across The Pond

Today I received a package from John Arnold who lives over in the U.K.  We have been trading Phillies and Red Sox stuff for awhile.  He sent over some great stuff for my collection.  Check it out!

This is the first time I’ve heard of the APBA baseball card game.  Apparently it has been around since the 50’s.  For more information, check out their site.

I received a package today from John over in the U.K.  Anyone remember Bobby Estalella??  Thanks John!

Today in the mail I received a package from the U.K. containing a large stack of Phillies cards for my collection.  The person who sent this is a big Red Sox fan, so I will have to dig up some cards to send back.  Thanks!

Package Received from the U.K.

Yesturday I received a package in the mail from John over in the U.K.  Inside was a large stack of Phillies cards for my collection.  While placing the cards in my album I realized he sent me a Mickey Morandini 1991 Score RC, a few Phillies cards from 1970 Topps, and my personal favorite is the Darren Daulton 1993 Topps Black Gold insert.  John writes for A Pack A Day and you should check out the site.  Its one of the better sports card blogs.  Once I get some more Red Sox stuff built up, I’ll send them your way.  I guess that means I need to open more boxes.  Well, if I have to, I have to 🙂

On a side note, I was able to get the photo of myself and the 2008 World Series Trophy scanned.  The Phillies had a whole photo booth setup, and were pumping these things out left and right.
